Stars, Stripes, and Dots Progress

Today I get to share some more in progress photos from the Fat Quarter Shop project I’m working on.

This is the panto I’m using. I’m loving the texture these wovens give when quilted! I’m using Hobbs 80/20 batting and Glide thread in Khaki.

Come back Friday to see the finished pics! And don’t forget, Fat Quarter Shop is celebrating their Sweet Sixteenth Birthday this week, they have new 24 hour sakes starting at 10 AM each day with items up to 70% off!

Have a great day!

Next Hand Quilting Project?

I’ve been looking at my vintage tops to choose my next hand quilting project. I really love this funky top, even with the fading.

It does need a few repairs.

I pulled these words pieces of fabric. I think the one on the left matches best.

I am out if the batting I like for hand quilting so I have some time to do the repairs. I have another possible quilt top I will share soon.

Have a great day!

Iceland Part 6

More scenes from Iceland as we drove across the North side from east to west.

A volcanic crater near Lake Myvatn.

Lava formations

Godafoss waterfall

A very old sod church.

Basalt columns along a beach


As I look back, we packed so much in and yet still missed so much!

Have a great day!

Finish It Up Friday ~ Mid Mod Beads

I really work from one extreme to another, don’t I? Last week I finished my vintage claret stars and this week, it’s Mid Mod Beads!

This was an experimental piece trying out my Quick Curve Ruler.

I should have finished with a facing, but I was feeling a bit lazy.

I love the texture of matchstick quilting!

Not sure what I’ll do with this one, but I sure had fun making it!

Have a great day!
